Muir Orthopedic Surgery Center in Walnut Creek. Call them. My ortho guy, Dr. Toma, is very good, but I know they have a shoulder/arm specialist.
+1 for Thabit. He just prepaired my labrum and I'm very happy with the result. My PT guy says he's the only surgeon in the Bay Area that he'd use if he were having shoulder surgery and some of his staff was also operated on by him.KentM said:If you are in the Bay Area, I used Dr. George Thabit III at SOAR in Redwood City. He only does shoulders/knees and maybe elbows. He does most of the work on the professional volleyball players, as well as baseball, etc. He does his surgery at two locations, Palo Alto and Burlingame. I personally know several people that have gone to him with great success.
Unfortunately, the surgeon is only half of the battle. I visited 4-6 rehab centers prior to selecting Personal Edge Physical Therapy in Dublin. They did an outstanding job with my rehab. Invest the time to visit at least three therapy centers so you get a good feeling for them.
There is another Doctor in that office that did my shoulder surgery and I would recommend. Dr. Zwahlen.grace said:Ouch - sorry to hear. Sounds like you're all set - but in case a couple more comments are useful:
I haven't been to Dr. A, but + 1 (or more!) for Eppley - he did an amazing job diagnosing & repairing problems with my knee after a complicated fracture a year earlier. He has focused on shoulders and knees for 20 years, and works with Cal's sports teams. His anesthesiologist was great too. He works in Berkeley and Orinda/Walnut Creek.
Im feelin ya but your gonna have to trade that thing for some rubber bands and a stick for a while...Haus Boss said:Motivation that's semi-torturous- especially looking at this pic!
